Why do they grow up so fast?

I know I am not the only Mom or Dad that feels this way, but nevertheless it is killing me inside. How do they grow up so quickly??? It seems like only yesterday I was changing diapers and rocking my baby to sleep and now he is so grown up and independant that dear ole' Mommy is not needed as much. Yes he still loves me and wants me for comfort or whenever he is feeling a little lazy, but it has all gone by way too fast! I try to savor every minute of every day with him so that I can atleast say I have made the most of his childhood years.

He is funny and rowdy. He is friendly and kind. He is a typical boy - with just enough sweetness to make you melt. Yesterday while we were in the pool he and I had the funniest conversation:

Colby : "Know what Mom."

Me: "What""

Colby: "Boys give girls their hearts."

Me: "Really"

Colby: "I'll give my heart to you Mom. You've got mine."

Oh! I love moments like this! I dread the day that he brings some girl home to meet his parents, but for now he is all mine! I love my son son much!
